EDIC has announced a recall of about 53,000 air movers/blowers. The air movers' internal electric capacitor can fail and overheat, posing a risk of fire. Thus far, four fires have been reported.

This recall involves air movers/blowers that are used to dry floors in homes and other buildings. 'Aqua Dri' is printed on the top of some of the air movers. Model "3004AD" or model "3004ADxxx" (with additional letters) is printed on the serial number plate on the back of the units. Model numbers with 'N' are not included in this recall.

The recalled air movers' plastic housing measures about 18 inches high by 18 inches long by 18 inches deep and has a 25-foot yellow electrical cord. The affected blowers were sold nationwide to floor remediation contractors and other service professionals from January 2003 to September 2011.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled air movers and contact EDIC for a free repair kit. For additional information, contact EDIC at 888-289-8720.
